Name: Timothy Dolan
Date of Birth: 2/6/1950
Place of Birth: Missouri, USA
Current Position: Archbishop of New York
Current Location: New York
Pro: Archbishop of the largest media market in the United States; has taken a leading voice in reasserting Catholic presence in the public square. A Smart and likable man, who is perceived as a problem solver. American sensibilities with Irish blood.
Con: Has arrows in his back, in particular, there are questions about how he handled the settlement of sex-abuse priests in his previous assignment of Milwaukee. Has a tendency to speak before thinking, especially, when making jokes that no one really seems to get. American—really, no one sees an American as Pope, mainly because we don’t speak Latin.
